The Style of Self-Love
Positive affirmations are proven to work as a psychological key to confidence. Not only should you tell yourself how powerful you are, but you should display a daily reminder! Seek out wall art with empowering typography. Discover a phrase that makes you feel like you can take on the world, and hang it in a location with high visibility. Choose a quote or phrase that is specific to women for an extra boost of divine femininity.
ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares her tips:
“Inspiring typography is subtle way to work on our mindset and cheer us up. Art touches our souls, and especially due to our current worldwide situation, we need to be surrounded by positivity. All in all, displaying inspiring quotes and motivational typography is a subtle way to create a positive environment to cheer up and boost your day-to-day energy and outlook."
Female Artists for Any Room
A direct way to give back to the female community is by buying artwork from female artists. Browse our collection of wall décor by fine artists, and choose your favorite piece by a woman. The best part? You can make an artistic statement in any room! If you want your feminist artwork to be more visible, consider hanging your canvas in a community space like a living or dining room. You can even create a gallery-style label next to your print to share information about your chosen artist with family and friends. You can also read through our “Artist Spotlight” blog posts to learn more about some of the creative women represented in our catalog.
Connect with Nature through Colors
We call it “mother nature” for a reason. There’s something inherently feminine about the earth itself. After all, women are the life-givers of this planet. Bohemian decor is about embracing the natural world, and showing your love for all things organic. Connect to your natural femininity with an array of plants and plant-inspired décor. Opt for neutral, earthy colors that reflect the adventurous bohemian spirit, and make your empowering artwork the focus of the room. Botanical-style colors are essential when it comes to capturing the boho decorating aesthetic.
Body Positivity & Canvas Sizes
Hang a piece of artwork that celebrates the female body! There’s no “right way” for a women’s body to look, so look for wall art that makes you feel beautiful. Just like women’s bodies, boho wall decor comes in a wide range of sizes. Choose a large canvas to make a statement, or go with a smaller piece for a splash of style. The bohemian lifestyle focuses on promoting an artistic lifestyle and applauding creative endeavors, so pair your piece of body-positive art with a few of your own creations.
The Shape of You (and Your Art!)
Whether you identify as a woman yourself, or you simply want to show your support for the feminist movement, there are plenty of stunning ways to celebrate women within your home. You don’t have to sacrifice social justice for style. In fact, the two can work together in harmony to create a beautiful interior. Consider using unexpected shapes and multi-panel canvases for an eye-catching look. The more eyes on the artwork, the better!
The Topic of Diverse Artwork
Feminism is also about acknowledging marginalized groups under the “female” umbrella. Whether you are a BIPOC yourself, or you simply want to show your support, representation is crucial when it comes to female empowerment. Not only is it important to buy from diverse artists, but you should also consider art that portrays the female experience from different points of view. Just like there is no single standard for the female body, there is no single female form who should be represented in modern art. Explore artwork that showcases a diverse array of women, and choose the piece that speaks to you.
